Dylan Cover #303 The Steepwater Band "Isis" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from The Steepwater Band and is a live cover of "Isis" 

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune in the series:
Desire is such a thick album, Dylan's most complex story songs seem to hover in and around it, and not all are winners...."Isis" is though.  A great song that manages to engage even without a chorus, it is one of Bob's more "mystical" tunes and lures most people in the first time they hear it...before the mp3 age it came right after the powerful "Hurricane" and transforms the album from timely to timeless.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE have not heard of The Steepwater Band before. Turns out they are a bluesy rock band from Chicago who have been rocking since 1998. 
Thoughts on Cover:
Great guitar work and some upbeat playing make this journey a fun one to take after this holiday weekend. Get up and shake out that stuffing with the fellas.
